Religious and spiritual poem by a "Parish Poet" Peter Menkin described this way regarding the one word ending: "The ending of this poem says, "Quenches." The grace of God quenches the spirit, bringing peace is the thought I wish to communicate. Yet I think the right word is "Quenching", according to those who have read the poem. The grace of God is quenching my spirit for its thirst and its jangle of thoughts and busyness. Here is the poem, some words about contemplation, and even at times, meditation." This short poem by Oblate Peter Menkin is a reflection and a statement on waiting. A regular practice of parishioner Peter Menkin who attends Church of Our Saviour, Mill Valley, California USA.
